Why It’s Important to Give Back to the LGBT Community
In general, individuals in the United States and around the world are incredibly generous. We support our family and friends. We even support strangers. (Think of the plethora of “GoFundMe” campaigns for those facing difficult times). We subsidize cities and countries in need (especially after a natural disaster). And, sometimes, we even sponsor animals. (Have you ever fostered a puppy or kitten?). We also support the causes in which we believe. Quite often, it is this reinforcement that is critical to those causes and to the individuals behind (or at the forefront of) them.
We at Rainbow Depot, and many of you, wholeheartedly support the LGBT community - we give back to them. By doing this we:
Strengthen the community as a whole as well as the individuals who comprise it.
Champion their (and our) belief in equal rights for all.
Celebrate individuality and love.
And, honor the struggles and appreciate the successes of those who have come before us.
As you are well aware, June was Pride month. In recognition, there were celebrations and parades in cities and towns around the world. At Rainbow Depot, we are proud to support the LGBT community year-round.
This year we were especially honored to participate in Pride month in New York City. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Pride, we continued to give back as we donated the rainbow flags displayed at The Stonewall Inn. We were proud to join so many in recognizing the historic importance of this landmark. Additionally, we also contributed the Pride flags raised at the New York State Capitol. We were so excited to have the opportunity to help visually represent Pride in New York.
As a company and as individuals we will continue to give back to the LGBT community; they are well deserving of our loyalty. And, we encourage you to do the same. Whether your support is financial (there are so many worthy organizations to which you can donate) or symbolic (perhaps fly one of our Rainbow Flags from your home), it is always appreciated.
That said, the perhaps the most valuable support you can provide is your unconditional love and acceptance. One of favorite quotes is “In a world where you can be anything, be kind.” What an amazing sentiment.
We hope these words inspire you to give back to the LGBT community and to do so with with kindness, love and enthusiasm. At Rainbow Depot we look forward to supporting your actions and to continuing to give back to a community for which we have the utmost love and respect.
